Stratford police investigate home distraction burglary


Stratford police are looking for three suspects involved in a distraction burglary on Broadbridge Avenue on Thursday.

At around 10:30 a.m., police said an unidentified male posed as a water company employee to gain access to a home. The homeowner escorted the suspect into the basement when two other suspects entered the home and committed the burglary, police said.

Upon police arrival, the suspects left the scene and fled towards Winter Street.

Police released these descriptions of the suspects:

  1. White male, around 5′ 10, wearing a white button down shirt with blue stripes and a gray hat with a red logo.
  2. White male of average height, stocky build, and has brown hair.
  3. White male around 5′ 11, wearing a white shirt, and has brown, curly hair.

Police want to remind people to not let strangers into their homes and always ask for worker’s ID.
